Kitty S. Harris, Amanda K. Baker, Thomas G. Kimball, and Sterling T. Shumway (2007)
The Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery (CSAR) (a Center within the College of Human Sciences at Texas Tech University, TTU), has developed a comprehensive Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC).

To build community capacity for helping students in recovery thrive in the fullness of the college experience, this research suggests, when starting to serve and support college students in recovery, there are 11 community-based assets that one should emphasize. Then, over time, one should continue to leverage as many of the 27 remaining community-based assets as possible to grow and sustain a collegiate recovery program. This set of 38 assets illustrates, on a national level, the assets that practitioners in this field have found the most useful to serving and supporting college students in recovery.
